Wedding photographer Alessandro Iasevoli, was awarded 1st place for photo 1878251 in the Great Natural Light category for the WPJA's 2016 Q2 Photography Contest .
The WPJA contest judges presented Alessandro Iasevoli, a Roma, Italy wedding photographer, with this Master Piece Award as recognition for top wedding photojournalism in the industry.
The leading documentary wedding photographers in the world enter their best photos to the Wedding Photojournalist Association's photography competitions. They want their wedding reportage photographs to be evaluated and selected by some of the most notable and respected working picture editors and photojournalists in the news industry (these are not wedding photographers or other WPJA members judging their work). Winning these competitions is a true accomplishment for a wedding photographer.
- Strong image with great light. Love the eye.
- This image was the clear winner. Beautiful natural light, nice moment and gesture, but especially great is the reflected spot light on her face illuminating her eye. Love it.
- It’s as though the groom recognizes the traditionally higher “stage” occupied by his bride as expressed through a momentary lighting highlight that makes even the fine hairs on her arms visible. He’s a handsome groom and he basks in the scattering of light striking his bride within the car. But, light alone has graced her with an ambiance that cannot be matched. I suspect, like most men I know, that he is fine with that. After all, she is his beautiful wife on this day.
